The Undergraduate Honor Council was established in 1986 through a student referendum with the goal of upholding our university to a higher standard both inside and outside the classroom, as articulated through the Honor Code. Our purpose is twofold: to educate the University community and to adjudicate. The students who established the Honor Code were committed to enhancing the academic quality of our institutions and creating an environment where cheating plagiarism, collusion and other forms of academic dishonesty would not be tolerated.

The Council’s main purpose is to uphold a high standard of academic integrity and honesty, both inside and outside of the classroom. We are here to help support you and the University community to ensure that we continue to promote the values set forth by the Honor Code.

The Council consists of representatives from the undergraduate schools selected each year for a one-year term by the Selection and Appeals Committee.

If you have any questions about the Code or the Council, feel free to explore this site. Also, don't hesitate to contact the Honor Council office at (305) 284-5354, or by e-mail at We are located in the Whitten University Center suite 2250.
